What’s on in Glasgow – Revolution Series
What’s on in Glasgow? Revolution Series | Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome | Glasgow | Saturday 31st January
Over the past 12 years, Revolution Series has grown into the most successful elite track cycling league in the world.
Revolution Series has two simple aims: to provide a competitive environment in which Britain’s best track cyclists can develop their talent, and to provide fans with thrilling, world-class track cycling entertainment.
Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish MBE, Victoria Pendleton CBE, Dutch legend Marianne Vos and multiple world-record holder François Pervis are just some of the world-famous names who’ve appeared at Revolution Series.
There are three main elements: the Elite Championship, Future Stars and UCI-sanctioned racing.
The Revolution Series Elite Championship is the centrepiece. Pro teams like Team Sky and Rapha Condor JLT compete in five races at each round. Consistency of performance and teamwork are the keys to success with points collected in all races: 10 points for first place, nine for second place, down to one for 10th place.
Pro teams consist of two riders at each event, drawn from a larger professional team – it won’t be the same two riders at every round.
Past winners of the Future Stars competition include Steven Burke and Pete Kennaugh, both of whom won team pursuit Gold at the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Revolution Series attracts capacity crowds across the season and is increasing its reach across the UK. A third visit to the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow comes in January, with other rounds at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester and Lee Valley VeloPark in London.
